View Full Version : Another November Challenge...

Sorry, gals I was out of town and forgot to post this before I left yesterday.

My challenge is to make a card with some sort of "window" in the front of it. You can make it acetate or just a "hole" and of course in whatever theme you want.

Here is a sample of two I made. For the first one I used a Nestie to make the hole.



For this one, I used a square punch for the window panes and just an exacto knife to make the large hole the panes were attached to. My punch wouldn't reach all the way so I had to improvise.


Post your card in the Mystery Challenge gallery with Window in the title. I will draw for a little prize from all the entries posted by December 1.

I've never done a window card before.... Hmmmm Sounds like a fun challenge!

Adding a comment to this thread and link to the card if you can would be great too! I know it is crazy busy this time of year, but I do hope some of you get a chance to try this. I was thinking of trying a snowy window scene and using it as a Christmas card .......

wow Heather this was quite a challenge for me. I tried out a window with acetate...I like the look alot but it will take some more work to perfect the process. Thanks for a great challenge!

You did a great job on the challenge! I really like the glitter you added to the window - perfect for a sledding image.

Heather here is my window challenge card

I intend to put some appropriate words on at a later date, as I thought it could be used as a get well or bereavement card

Thanks for playing, what a great idea to weave in the window.
